Have the Mother of all Mother’s Days here at The Bull.

Here at the Bull we’ve got the Mother of all Mother’s Days planned for you this year…

We believe that all Mums deserve the very best so we’re going for a hattrick this Mother’s Day by giving you three opportunities to treat your lovely Mum to a delicious meal with us. We’ll be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner and giving you the chance to book a table at ours in either the beautiful dining room or back bar.

Although it’s not quite breakfast in bed, our home from home atmosphere will be the perfect setting for your Mother to indulge in her breakfast of choice by sampling our new menu. We’ll be serving breakfast 8-10:30, so why not pop-in early doors and give your Mum the best start to her day possible.

Alternatively, you could spoil her with one of our legendary Sunday Roasts. We’ll be serving up roasts with all the trimmings, cooked by our brigade of chefs, from 12 until 9. Our locally sourced, seasonal menu will be on offer throughout the day, offering a huge variety of delicious dishes for all to enjoy.

Finally, if she isn’t already sweet enough, our full range of delicious desserts will also be available and nothing says ‘I love you Mum’ better than a cheeky pudding.

Tables always fill up very fast for Mother’s Day so get ahead of the rest and book a table via: or call us on: 01273 843147.

We look forward to seeing you and your amazing Mummies on Sunday 22nd March.

Can’t make it? How about treating your marvellous Mum to one of our beautiful gift vouchers?

Our vouchers are available in £25 denominations and are delivered in our branded gift boxes as standard.

Gift vouchers can be redeemed against food, drink or accommodation purchases at The Bull.

We’re going Blue and White for Albion in the community.

On Friday 27th March The Bull will be turning Blue and White to support Albion in the Community’s ‘Blue and White Day’.

Following our ongoing partnership with this amazing charity, for one day only, The Bull will be turning Blue and White.

All our team will be sporting Albion in the community’s blue and white t-shirts and extra special blue and white treats will be served behind the bar.

You can support this great charity on the day by popping down to ours and indulging yourself with a special, limited addition blue and white treat from behind the bar and all the proceeds will be donated to the charity.

Alternatively, have a meal with us on the day and a discretionary £2 donation can be added to your food bill.

Easter is upon us…

The Easter Bunny is already preparing his chocolate eggs and we’re busy making plans for an epic Easter 2020.

We’ve already started preparing for the bank holiday weekend and we’ll be serving food all day – Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

Food service times will be as follows:

Good Friday: breakfast 8-11 then food all day 12-9.30pm

Saturday: breakfast 8-10.30 then food all day 12-9.30pm

Easter Sunday: breakfast 8-10.30 then food all day 12-9pm

Bank holiday Monday: breakfast 8-10.30 then food all day 12-9pm

Tables tend to fill up quickly on bank holiday weekends so make sure you get ahead of the rest by booking a table via our website at: or by calling the team on 01273 843147.

Hopefully we’ll be blessed with decent weather over the bank holiday so don’t forget our award-winning garden will also be open for you to sit and enjoy a meal or a drink, at the foot of the South Downs.

Finally, if you’re lucky enough to be visiting Plumpton Racecourse for their annual Race day, The Bull is the perfect place for a post-race pitstop…we’ll have several bottles of Ridgeview on ice ready and waiting for you.

Attention all quizzers…

Get your thinking caps on and make sure you make arrangements to join us for our ever-popular, monthly quiz nights.

Taking place on the second Sunday of every month, our pub quiz has six brain stretching rounds including: a picture round, ‘read all about it’ (our current affairs round) and an exciting ‘wipe out’ round where, if you answer all the questions correctly, you get five bonus points but if you get any one question wrong you lose all your points for the entire round! Let’s just say it gets very tense!

Quiz nights are always great fun and a fantastic way to spend a Sunday evening in front of our cosy fire whilst testing your general knowledge abilities.

Prizes include: a round of drinks for second place, a bottle of wine for the best team name and an exciting jackpot for the winners.

Our April quiz night falls on Easter Sunday and we can’t think of a better way to spend an Easter bank holiday evening. So, get to ours for around 7:30 to start quizzing from 8pm – make sure you’ve brushed up on your general knowledge as no one likes to be the weakest link.
